Oxygen Absorber

OUKPAK® is an oxygen absorber developed to protect packaged foods, pharmaceuticals and other products against spoilage, mold growth, color change, rancidity, loss of nutritive values, insect damage and loss of quality. Produced in packet from using food grade ingredient, OUKPAK® irreversibly absorbs oxygen inside sealed packaging to less than 0.01% and maintains this level.

Package Requirement

OUKPAK® has been found to be effective when used with many kinds of packaging materials including EVOH and PVDC. Some important consideration to keep in mind regarding certain types of packaging includes:

  • Adequate barrier should be used-Plastic film must be checked for its oxygen permeability
  • Hermetic seals are essential – Non hermetic seals reduce shelf-life by using up oxygen absorber capacity prematurely
  • Package geometry- The package must be designed so as to allow free circulation of air around the product

It is recommended that application tests with actual materials and equipment be conducted before using and specifying OUKPAK®. This includes determining the water activity of the product as nearly as possible, at what temperature the product will be packaged, and specifications of the packaging film.

Package Material

Type Characteristic Application How to judge

Perforation
(PET/PAP/PE)
Three layers; perforate through the upside three layers Can not contact food directly; food with shell
  1. look through the packet material under the light, you will see the tiny pore on it;
  2. paint the inside layer by greasy pen, you will see the color leak out on the outside layer

Leak Proof
(PET/PAP/PE)
Three layers; perforate through the upside two layers; with breathable tiny pore PE layer inside; prevent the inside metarial leak out Recommanded for food less of grease, direct contact is acceptable, Oily food with pallet inside that do not contact it directly is acceptable
  1. look through the packet material under the light, no tiny opre can be found;
  2. paint the inside layer by grease pen, no color leak out on the outside layer

Grease Proof
(PET/EVA/PAP/PE)
Four layers; perforate through the upside two layers; with grease proof paper layer inside. Recommend for all food, especially food full of grease, Can contact food directly
  1. Paint the inside layer by grease pen, no color leak out on the outside layer;
  2. dip the oxygen absorber packets in oil at 60 degree centigrade for 10 minutes and take it out, tear the packet, no oil can be found and the powder is a dry as before. Wipe away the oil on oxygen absorber packet and it will keep on reacting.
